Kenya’s Ezekiel Kemboi celebrates winning gold in the men’s 3000-meter steeplechase

From the track to the ring to the sandpit, this crop of Olympians just can’t stop the beat. The London Games have brought an outpouring of crazy, creative victory celebrations.

FUNKY JIGS

Kenyan steeplechase winner Ezekiel Kemboi celebrated his gold medal with a hip-swiveling, arm-shaking peacock dance for 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium.

At the ExCel center, U.S. boxing champ Claressa Shields broke into a combination jig-and-fist-bump when she took gold in one of the first-ever Olympic women’s boxing contests.

Over at the beach volleyball venue, American Misty May-Treanor — a former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant — broke into a funky jig in the sand as she celebrated winning gold with partner Kerri Walsh Jennings.

“I just had to get out there and let it out,” May-Treanor said.

And the antics aren’t confined to land. Australia’s Malcolm Page and Matthew Belcher celebrated winning sailing gold Friday by back-flipping off their 470 sailboat, which then capsized.
